You probably know some of the virtues, health that is, of avocados.I’ll be sharing some with you! And, you might just think Mexican or South American when you see an avocado. Did you know that an avocado is a fruit? And, it’s sometimes known as the ‘alligator pear’!  So, my avocado pimento cheese  spread is aptly named!

Avocados have more potassium than bananas. They’re heart healthy. Loaded with fiber, these creamy luvvees help reduce cholesterol and triglycerides. And, they have powerful antioxidants that help your eyes~~move over Bugsy carrots!

Well, since I love pimento cheese, I wanted to create something for sandwiches similar to a pimento cheese spread that would be healthier and incorporate my beloved avocados, which I never ate until I was an adult~~seems we couldn’t find them, didn’t have them or whatever growing up in them thar mountains of Appalachia! Oh, what a big world of boholicious food this is! xox ~peace & green avocado luv~ ally
